The cannabis products company has reached new heights in the industry
Item 9 Labs Corp. is now officially one of the fastest growing cannabis companies in Arizona. CBD Analytics, an industry data research company, has recognized the company through its GreenEdge Retail Tracking platform, pushing Item 9 into the limelight and deeper into the industry. Item 9 is behind a number of cannabis products, as well as proprietary cannabis delivery platforms.
According to Sara Gullickson, Item 9’s CEO, “Our sales last year surpassed our pre-expansion goals and concentrates played a big part in that growth. Concentrates appeal to patients because they offer discreetness, portability, and consistency when dosing. 2019, we plan to diversify our product lines further and develop other comfortable health solutions for the modern cannabis consumer.”
Item 9 currently has 50 acres of cultivation land in Arizona, reported to be one of the largest properties in the U.S. that is zoned for medical cannabis. The company is expanding beyond cultivation and processing, and hopes to have a number of licensed dispensaries and manufacturing facilities in as many as ten states by the end of this year.
Additionally, the company is adding a commercial kitchen to its Arizona facility and increasing the facility’s square footage by 10,000. It is increasing its delivery systems for tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) products, including its popular Intra-Nasal, Apollo Vape Pen and Pod System devices.
According to the GreenEdge data, Item 9 saw its concentrate sales increase by 234% from the first quarter to the last quarter of 2018. The added capabilities expected for 2019 will only see the company find even greater success throughout the year.
